Lucas: Fracking is 'a complete distraction'

Fracking is "perverse" and "a complete distraction" said Caroline Lucas.

The Green Party MP wanted the Government to recognise Balcombe, where large anti-fracking protests have been taking place since the weekend, is "on the front line of climate change".

The MP was speaking the day after she was arrested for protesting at the Balcombe site, along with her son.
